REMEMBER TO SAVE OFTEN 

Step 1: Outline
This is the outline we will be making. Mine has been resized a lot so you can see it clearly. 
To make this easier I have numbered all pixels over 1.
We will be adding the paw pads, inner ears and the face after we have done the main outline.
Open a new image 200 x 200 transparent. 
Select the brush tool with the following settings.
Size: 1 - Hardness, Opacity and Density: 100 
Zoom in to about 800% - 1000% 
Set your foreground to colour 1 on the Bear outline colour chart (#945937) and start at whichever point you prefer. (You can move the image later using your move tool if you need to). 
Do all the bear outline in that colour. 
Change your foreground to colour 10 on the Muffin outline colour chart (#FDADBE) and do all of the pink icing outline.
Change your foreground to colour 8 on the Muffin outline colour chart (#9C0808) and do all of the cherry outline.

Add a new Raster layer and change your foreground to colour 5 on the Bear outline colour chart (#F3A47D). Draw in the muzzle outline as shown above.

Change your foreground to White and add a white pixel in the center of his nose.
